About Cravings


During the auto industry downturn in 2009, Shaun McGowan had the opportunity for a career change. With the newfound time, Shaun reminisced about the days he dreamed of having an ice cream shop. As the year continued to slide past, Shaun and his wife, Sheila, decided to act on the dream and open an ice cream shop.

A friend of theirs was a chocolatier and recommended to also carry chocolates and fudge to go hand-and-hand with the ice cream. Ice cream during the summer and chocolates and fudge in the fall/winter – can’t go wrong!

Cravings opened October 16, 2009 as a full service ice cream, chocolate, and fudge shop. Delicious all year ‘round!
